McDonalds is based just outside of Chicago, and has had a sorta "flagship" store known as the "Rock and Roll McDonalds" in the River North neighborhood just north of the Loop since 1983. They have announced this past week that they are going to tear it down and build a new flagship location to be open by next April. See pics below:

In general, there is nothing special about the McD's around here. There is one located in a post Chicago fire building from 1872 at the corner of Randolph and Dearborn, about a block from my home. (I tried to get a pic, but wasn't able to get the link to work.)

Current "Rock and Roll" location:


New Flagship location to replace the old one:

A year ago, it was decided that all Burger King Stores would be rebranded Hungry Jacks and all stores have since been rebranded.
Plus Hungry Jacks won an out of court settlement for around AUS$70m over it all. Taco Bell have also pulled out of Australia.

unhealthy it may be, but i think kfc's original chicken skin (not the spicy one) is simply irresistible. they should sell it on its own.. i never eat the chicken..

this isnt architecture, but i found it rather nifty

in singapore you can pay in mcdonald's using a contactless card mainly used for public transport. for students it's an identity card too and can be used for borrowing stuff from public libraries
